Impact of heating method on the flocculation process using thermosensitive polymer
Flocculation process based on water soluble polymers as flocculating agents is still intensively researched nowadays, despite the introduction of these materials about fifty years ago. There is a need to gain the full control of this process in order to obtain high efficiency and strictly define products. For that purpose new solutions are proposed like stimuli-responsive macromolecules. In this paper the impact of suspension heating method on the flocculation process using thermosensitive polymer is reported. In...
How well does my filter work?
Contamination control is the key to a cost-effective maintenance operation for hydraulic or engine systems. You depend on your filters, whether hydraulic, lube or fuel, to keep your fluids clean, to keep maintenance costs down, and to ensure reliable operation. At some point, you probably will ask yourself whether or not your filters are really working and doing what they were designed to do. There are different ways to answer this question. The easiest (and least reliable) way to answer the question is to...
Characteristics of different fractions of microbial flocs and their role in membrane fouling
Characteristics of different fractions (small flocs vs. large flocs) of sludge flocs from a submerged anaerobic membrane bioreactor treating thermomechanical pulping (TMP) whitewater were determined using various analytic techniques, including extraction and chemical analysis of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), particle size analyzer, and polymer chain reaction (PCR)-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). The results showed that the fraction of smaller flocs contained a higher level of bound EPS...
No-till corn after Bromegrass: Effect on soil carbon and soil aggregates
Grasslands in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) in the USA may be converted to grain crops for bioenergy. The effect of no-till conversion of a smooth bromegrass (Bromus inermis Leyss) grassland to no-till corn (Zea mays L.) production on soil organic carbon (SOC) in the western Corn Belt was monitored for over 6 yr. A different 13C/12C isotope signature is imparted to SOC by C4 plants including corn versus C3 plants such as bromegrass. Changes in C isotope ratios in SOC in three soil depths (0- to 5-, 5–10,...
Toxicopathological impact of sub-lethal concentration of lead nitrate on the aerial respiratory ...
Main sources of lead pollution of aquatic ecosystems are the industrial discharge, atmospheric fall out and sewage effluents. Toxicity of lead in the lung-breathing animals is generally manifested through the contaminated air. In fish, the toxicity of lead is however induced via the gills, which are their main respiratory organs. Keeping this in mind, the gills have widely been used as bio-indicator not only to detect lead toxicity (Parashar and Banerjee, 2002) but also for analyses of several other pollutants...
Real-Time Measurement of Outdoor Tobacco Smoke Particles
ABSTRACT The current lack of empirical data on outdoor tobacco smoke (OTS) levels impedes OTS exposure and risk assessments. We sought to measure peak and time-averaged OTS concentrations in common outdoor settings near smokers and to explore the determinants of time-varying OTS levels, including the effects of source proximity and wind. Using five types of real-time airborne particle monitoring devices, we obtained more than 8000 min worth of continuous monitoring data, during which there were measurable OTS...
Secondary Effluent Depth Filtration Medium Capacity
ABSTRACTThe filter medium has a maximum accumulation capacity for the particulate material removed from the suspension that is being filtered. The maximum accumulation capacity (generally referred to as maximum specific deposit [MSD]) of the filter is basically an equilibrium condition, when the binding strength between the particles and the collecting medium (collecting medium can be the medium itself or the particles previously attached to the collecting medium) is equal to the shear forces exerted on the...
Seawater feed reverse osmosis preheating appraisal, Part I: leading element performance
This paper is concerned with the seawater reverse osmosis preheating process, and presents a parametric study of the process. The basic transport equations describing the leading element are exhibited and appraised. The leading element, which governs the whole system performance, is studied and analysed. The incorporated and investigated operating parameters are the feed pressure and the temperature for different feed salt concentrations. In addition, different feed flow rates, effects on permeate flux and...
Toxins in all-weather jackets
All-weather garments for children contain high levels of fluorinated environmental toxins. This is shown by analyses carried out by the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) – on behalf of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC) and the Norwegian Society for the Conservation of Nature NSCN. SSNC and NSCN are now urging politicians and manufacturers to take action.
Effects of air pollution on emergency admissions for chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases in ...
The present paper is based on results collected from the air quality network, which was assembled for covering the Oporto metropolitan area, in Portugal. Among the SO2 and PM10 levels obtained for the last two decades, a particular unpolluted year was chosen to evaluate the health effects of concentrations lower than those that usually cause acute episodes. It was observed that even low levels of SO2 could be related with the increase of obstructive chronic pulmonary diseases morbidity daily rates recorded in...
Distribution and possible immobilization of lead in a forest soil (Luvisol) profile*
Geochemical analyses using a sequential extraction method and lead adsorption studies were carried out in order to characterize the distribution and adsorption of lead on each genetic horizon of a Luvisol profile developed on a pelagic clayey aleurolite. Clay illuviation is the most important pedogenic process in the profile studied. Its clay mineralogy is characterized by chlorite/vermiculite species with increasing chlorite component downward. The amount of carbonate minerals strongly increases in the lower...

Seasonal size distributions of suspended solids in a stormwater management pond
ABSTRACTThree seasonal surveys of suspended solids were carried out in an on-stream stormwater management pond, by means of a submersible laser particle size analyser. Size distributions were measured at up to 17 points in the pond, and water samples collected at the same locations were analysed for primary particles aggregated in flocs. Observed suspended solids were mostly composed of flocs, with maximum sizes ranging from 30 to 212 m for winter and summer surveys, respectively. Using a relationship defining...
Compost Site Comes Back From the Brink
The largest composter in the state of Washington, Cedar Grove Compost Company in Seattle, had its hands full of challenges in 1997 — confronted with a half million dollar fine, a lawsuit, and angry neighbors. With the adoption of an Environmental Management System (EMS), the compost facility has turned its precarious situation around and stayed in business, while dramatically cutting odor problems. With a generally satisfactory full year under its belt, the composter is looking forward to even better results in...
In Situ Solidification/Stabilization
Introduction Solidification/stabilization (S/S) reduces the mobility of hazardous substances and contaminants in the environment through both physical and chemical means. Unlike other remedial technologies, S/S seeks to trap or immobilize contaminants within their `host` medium (i.e., the soil, sand, and/or building materials that contain them), instead of removing them through chemical or physical treatment. Leachability testing is typically performed to measure the immobilization of contaminants. S/S techniques...
Quantification of Particle Shape and Angularity Using the Image Analyzer
The image analyzer commonly used by the powder metallurgists has been successfully employed to quantify angularity and shape characteristics of granular materials. In this paper a detailed procedure has been outlined. Results of investigation of different natural sands are presented in the form of a distribution of tangent count taken as a measure of angularity. Powers´ roundness index has been calibrated against the tangent count. Mechanical properties of different sands have been shown to be correlated with...
